Resistance is good; it’s the core of the change leader’s job

Project Methodologies do not get changes delivered, people do.  Change leaders don’t achieve it with change models and in cascade briefings, they do it on the ground, in real conversations with their stakeholders.   Those stakeholders who will ultimately deliver the change, and those all important benefits.

At this session, we won’t just talk about change, you will watch it happen, in a scenario played out by professional actors, with audience interaction from where you sit.

We will explore resistance, in all its forms, and you can ask to see, played out for you, the resistant behaviour that you personally encounter with your own stakeholders.  We will work on how successful change leaders identify and deal with it.  We will make the case that resistance is good, to be relished and sought out.

There will be debate, laughter, and serious learning.  And not a lot of Powerpoint.  No one will be bored, we promise.

People Deliver Projects are exhibiting on Stand 28.
